    Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan Pancakes

    Looking for a dairy-free, vegan breakfast idea? Here is a dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan recipe for delicious and healthy pancakes.

You just need a food processor, a non-stick pan, a few simple ingredients and et voila’, your pancakes are ready in less than 15 minutes! The best thing of pancakes are the toppings. Make sure to have plenty of fruit, seeds, nuts, dark chocolate and maple syrup to drizzle on the top!

  • Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips Banana Bread

    Banana bread is the perfect cake for those days when you have spare brown bananas and you don’t know how to get rid of them. The past week has been quite busy and I forgot to eat the few bananas that I bought last Sunday. This morning when I was sorting the kitchen I saw 2 ripe bananas and decided to prepare this Chocolaty Banana Bread. The recipe is dairy-free so perfect for those of you that don’t consume any dairy. I did use eggs but if you follow a vegan diet don’t worry. Simply substitute the eggs with “flegg”, i.e. egg replacer made from flax meal and water.

  • Fresh Mung Beans Salad

    Today I want to talk about Mung Beans. Have you ever tried them? Looking around I’ve noticed that they are not very popular and realised that many people don’t even know what they are. The mung beans are these little green beans which apart from having a good taste, are really good for our body!   Mung Beans are a high source of nutrients like manganese, potassium, magnesium, folate, zinc and the essential B vitamins. They are also high in protein and fiber which make them ideal for those of you that follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. If you have never tried them before, I would recommend to give them a try! They…

  • Roasted Beetroot Hummus

    How many time have you seen beetroot in the supermarket and have you thought: “What can I do with beetroots?” or “How can I cook beetroots?” or even “Will I like beetroots?”. Beetroots are very versatile and can be used in many different recipes. Just to mention a few: mix salads, with rice, barley, pasta, soups and as dips. Today I want to share with you a very simple and alternative hummus recipe that apart from being healthy and tasty, looks really cool and would be perfect for a starter to impress your guests or an afternoon snack.

  • Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat

    Let’s talk about Superfoods. Have you ever tried buckwheat? Buckwheat is often confused with a grain because of the way it is cooked and used, but it’s actually a ‘pseudo-cereal’ seed related to rhubarb and sorrel. It’s a good source of protein, containing all the essential amino acids. It is an excellent source of manganese and magnesium and a good source of selenium, niacin, folate, iron, zinc, copper and phosphorus. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be used as an alternative to rice, barley, porridge or even flour. Just to give you an idea, here is the recipe of the Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat that I prepared yesterday using @forestwholefoods organic Buckwheat…

  • Vegan Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

    Here we are again with a new Smoothie Bowl recipe! This time I want to propose you a Spirulina Smoothie Bowl! Have you ever tried Spirulina? If you haven’t heard of spirulina before, it’s a natural “algae” that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins, amino acids, iron, chlorophyll, and magnesium. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available!! I won’t lie to you, it doesn’t taste so great as it has a very strong flavor, but trust me, when mixed in a smoothie it tastes wonderful and the health benefits of this algae are so good…

  • Dairy-Free (and Guilt-Free) Dark Chocolate Crêpes

    Did I tell you that I really like experimenting and creating new recipes? Well, today I woke up feeling like something sweet and given that I had a few eggs in the fridge to get rid of, I decided to prepare crepes! But careful, these are not normal crepes! Normal crepes are made with milk, eggs, flour, butter, and in some cases water. These crepes as the title says are “Dairy-Free” and “Guilt-Free”!! In fact, they are lighter than usual crepes and are suitable for those of you that have a dairy allergy or simply don’t consume dairy products. For the base, I only used 5 ingredients: eggs, flour, non-dairy milk,…

  • Vegan Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cups

    Who doesn’t love Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cups?!? Did you know that they are very easy to prepare and you just need a few ingredients? As you can guess the main ingredients are chocolate and peanut butter so make sure to use best quality you can find! Apart from these ingredients, you would also need muffin cups. If you don’t have muffin cups yet I would highly recommend the silicone cups as they are much easier to use. It’s easier to remove the chocolate cups from these rather than the classic metal muffin tray. (Here are the silicone cups that I used: muffin cups).
